South Carolina Broadband Map

The South Carolina Broadband Map shows the availability of broadband service to every residential and business site in the state. Broadband data is provided by the majority of broadband providers in South Carolina. Based on broadband data provided, users can input their address to show the availability of broadband at their location. This includes download speeds, the connection type, and the providers offering service to their address. The map does not reveal the provider, if any, that a consumer may currently have service with at the particular address.

The map includes broadband provider data submitted to the South Carolina Office of Regulatory Staff (ORS) combined with availability data from the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) Form 477 (June 2019) data.

The ORS has provided a more precise picture of availability than the approach taken by the FCC. The South Carolina Broadband Map uses broadband provider data that was provided to show each home or business that is actually “served” or “unserved” in the state. The FCC Form 477 broadband mapping model defines entire census blocks as “served” or “unserved.” If broadband service is available to at least one location (home or business) in a census block, the entire block appears as “served.” The ORS has adopted the FCC definition of “served,” meaning a location with a minimum of 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload speed for use in this edition of the South Carolina Broadband Map.

Contacting the ORS About Map Discrepancies

The ORS is continuing to make the South Carolina Broadband Map as accurate as possible. The ORS is encouraging consumers who see a discrepancy in the map-— as in, the map suggests they have broadband service, but they actually do not— to contact the ORS.
